Surely one of WA’s best-kept secrets, the seaside city of Geraldton is the thriving hub of the midwest region, and the ideal base from which to explore its attractions. It’s a city with flowerbeds above and below the sea, and nature lovers call in to see carpets of colourful wildflowers in spring.
Surf enthusiasts are drawn here on the promise of consistent summer winds and perfect waves; history buffs visit to view the museums and drive trails, and the watery graves of notorious shipwrecks.
Why fly for a day to a crowded, humid, polluted dive destination when there's pristine reef on your doorstep? The Houtman Abrolhos – informally the Abrolhos Islands – are a must-see for water babies, with clear seas and coral formations you'll never forget. Among the world's most important seabird breeding sites, the islands are also home to Western Australia’s largest single-species fishery, for the mighty Western Rock Lobster.
Geraldton's stunning foreshore redevelopment offers alfresco cafes – some serving said lobster – with gorgeous ocean views, while nearby Town Beach is ideal for a relaxing picnic. Geraldton's burgeoning arts scene has become another highlight, with galleries, street art and unique boutiques topping off a cosmopolitan coastal destination that rivals any holiday spot on the planet.
